Freezing Rain: An Acrostic Poem

Ice builds up on an evergreen branch.

Freezing Rain

Frosty morning,
Rain begins.
Evergreens catch the drops.
Encased in ice, branches droop.
Zzzzzz! I go back to sleep.
I awake to the sound of branches breaking.
No power, as utility lines snap
Go get another blanket.

Refrigerator full of lukewarm food
And no prospect of a hot shower,
I pull the covers over my head;
Now to dream of summer.

What Creates Freezing Rain?

I LOVE cold weather, nevertheless, this gave me a good chuckle at the end.
